Which Statewide Candidate Will Be the First…

By VA Blogger

zorny … to call for Zorn to be replaced?



  • Dan says:

    One would hope that no one would wish to add to the turmoil and instability of the franchise by advocating for a continuation of the revolving door clusterfuck that has been the Redskins in the Snyder era. Firing the coach after three games wouldn’t solve any problems. It would only add to them.
    The problem is the owner. Now if one of the candidates could come up with a plausible way to remove Snyder they would win massive support in Northern Virginia. Can he be arrested and interned indefinitely at Gitmo? Could eminent domain be invoked? Condemn the team and take it for the public good? Or perhaps one of the candidates might simply lead a mob with torches and pitchforks to Snyder’s house in Potomac and deal with the problem that way.
    You could sign Jesus Christ to coach the team and it wouldn’t matter. You have to have a new owner or ‘Skins fans will continue to suffer.
    Hey! He sues the fans. Can we sue him? All the unemployed lawyers in the area ought to be all over this.

    Kooky Ken. Dumb ass moves like that are right up his alley.

  • There needs to be an all-out call for Dan Snyder and Vinnie Cerrato’s job. Time to clean house.

  • Loudoun Watcher says:

    OHMIGOD. I agree with Dan the Man again. What is this world coming to?

    Fire Synder.

  • Anon says:

    The Redskins do not have a coaching problem. The Redskins have a player problem. They are all overpaid and are allowed to act as if teamwork does not exist. Let’s go get us some bargain-priced upstarts who will truly, as Gibbs used to put it, “play their guts out.”

  • AFF says:

    Fire Snyder! …… if only it were a possibility.
    The Dude lost me early in the first season. Danny Boy trades Brian Mitchell, all time leading return man, to Philly, and acquired Deon Sanders at great expense.
    Brian Mitchell promptly runs a punt back for a touchdown against us. Meanwhile Deon, with great fanfare while dancing around like a fool, drops his very first kickoff return.
    The only Snyder action I found stupider was firing head coach Turner while still in playoff contention with 3 games left in the season.
    These realities are made all the worse by the knowledge that the Skins franchise has made Danny even richer.

  • Bwana says:

    Generally on this matter I agree with Dan above…you cannot dismiss Zorn after three games. It destroy whatever chances the ‘skins have this year, and would add additional barriers to getting a quality replacement in 2010.

    That being said, if Zorn is going to be relived of duty circle 10.26.2009 on your calendar. It is a monday night game against Philadelphia, it will be the 7th game, it is the first game with a consensus quality team, and it is followed by the bye weekend.

    If Snyder thinks there ia need to make a change, do it then with the bye week to try and to prepare for a better second half of the season.

    You do not have to be a genius to make $ in the NFL. With Revenue sharing anyone can make money. For years the Arizona Cardinals were the worst run franchise in the league. Bid Bidwell was a certified dipship. However, every year the Cardinals made a profit while making Bidwell richer.

    Snyder made a whole bunch of money in other ventures and should be praised for his success. He certainly has not had that same level of success with the Redskins. He lacks an understanding of the game and it shows.

  • FedUp says:

    Jason Campbell is the problem. He plays great against the prevent defense, but cannot make the big play when needed. He also has trouble hanging on to the ball and seems to fumble during critical drives. Did you see the play yesterday when he was winding up to throw and the ball slipped out of his hands behind him? His fumble in week one against the Giants cost them the game.
    Danny Boy blew his opportunity to get a money QB in Jay Cutler. The defense is pretty good and they could win with just an above-average QB. Get used to 13 more games of mediocrity.

  • kelley in virginia says:

    thank you for the Redskins thread!

    dan snyder is the big problem, but we, the fans, cannot get rid of the owner unless we buy the team.

    it is not zorn’s fault. if the players played at the level at which they are paid, we would have already won the Super Bowl for the next 3 years.

  • loudouninNC says:

    The supposedly “pretty good” defense IS the problem. Or did you miss the fact that Kevin Smith rushed for 100+ before he got injured in the THIRD quarter? Perhaps the multiple drives of 80+ had something to do with the loss.
    One thing is for sure, had the defense actually defended, maybe the result would’ve played out differently.
    Also, I’m ecstatic we don’t have the overpaid, overgrown, individualistic crybaby that Chicago paid through the nose for. Sanchez, maybe. Cutler? I’ll take Jason Campbell any day of the week over him.

  • Brian S says:

    I would have no problems if, as Governor, Bob McDonnell used the Governor’s development fund to buy the Redskins from Snyder. Then we move them to Northern Virginia, and everything is right with the world.

  • FedUp says:

    loudouninNC – The defense has given up the 6th fewest points in the NFL this year. A lot of teams would love to have that “problem!”
    Campbell has never thrown for more than 13 TDs in a season. He just cannot compete with all the talented QBs in the league these days.

  • Jason says:

    Steve Shannon, perhaps? Then maybe he’ll issue a press release condemning KC for not calling for Zorn’s resignation.

  • Steve Vaughan says:

    Whichever candidate proposes firing Zorn (and getting rid of Snyder too) would pick up 5 to 10 percent in the polls.
